October is still far away... this is just a first draft, I will constantly refine it.
Do not hesitate to link rules files if available, I might have missed some.

Medium/Medium-heavy eurogames are particularly welcome here.
The experience tells me that about 30-50% of those games end up in my collection (and not always those I was more excited about in the first place), which is a pretty high score.

Terra Mystica is #1 of all time, and this one is TM on steroids, could not be more excited...
Except my group of players is not so keen on space/SciFi theme. soblue

I love Glen More, I like Isle of Skye : I'm obviously keeping an eye on any scottish-themed game.
Despite a lot of similarities with Terra Mystica, it's obviously not the same game, and a clever remix of existing things (see designer's diary).

Status : Hope I can get my hands on it

Every game illustrated by Dennis Lohausen attracts me. It's colourful anyway.
Not a dice-worker-placement like I was thinking ; dice are just resources.
Twist on the victory condition (PV + money) sounds interesting. Rest is more than classic.

Action selection similar to Egizia, and interesting placement+activation optimization puzzle on the personal board. The final scoring seems a bit convoluted, but why not.
Not much interaction, it's limited to actions denial and completing objectives first. I don't dislike multiplayer solitaire by the way.
Beer-themed but the mechanics are not really reflecting it.

Seems to be released in german. A few texts, so a French version would be appreciated.

Uwe's games are not auto-buy anymore, but rules convinced me this time (unlike Hengist).
A few original ideas (walls configuration in particular) mixed with usual pure-Rosenberg-style-tricks.
Seems solid and kinda renewable.

Rüdiger Dorn, worker placement, playtime "only" 45min (probably closer to 1h reality).
Simple and clean design, maybe a bit light, but still might be in my wheelhouse. Medium-length and still challenging games are not that easy to find.

Not played the base game that much, and even lesser with the additional characters. But the game is good, so...
Gotta check language dependence; pretty optimistic about it giving the base game is independent. HiG usually are.

A clever take on treasure "sharing" game. Many possibilities to screw / get screwed by others. The treasure cards you finally get are scoring with kind of complicated multiplicative bonuses, but I guess it's ok for gamers.

Seems a bit convoluted, a lot of small rules everywhere ; but maybe it will click more easily than expected when played. Mainly a resource conversion and recipe fulfilment game in the end.
Quite sure we wont make it in 120min with my group whistle probably a lot more.

An nice take on action selection, with some interactions. Hard to evaluate without a proper play, though.
On the other hand, not sure I can raise the enthusiasm in my group with such a thousand-time-seen theme (merchants in medieval European cities...)

Not much depth but seems to do the job as a light-fast-accessible-family filler.
The card selection mechanism has been used in a lot of games and always works well, some combos, a little interaction with the guards/soldiers and the final majority : some meaningful decisions seems to be there.

Interesting addition. I like the fact that connecting with roads is now rewarded beyond income on barrels.
BUT the weight is completely changed. This cant be played with newbies so easily anymore. All in all, I wonder if I want to turn my IoS into a 90min euro (which I have plenty of).

My good impression from the rules is confirmed by good reviews.
Seems there is an original core mechanic, which is not mandatory to make a good game, but always welcome.

His latests games are far from being his bests, and from what I read, I don't think Stefan will come back to the top with this. Sounds incredibly boring, even for me who like a lot of old Felds.
Artwork is appealing, and I will probably play it if an opportunity shows, but I will survive if not.

Another bag building by Reiner Stockhausen. Orléans is much appreciated here, but kinda disappointed by the apparent lack of tweaks here. Sounds flat in terms of gameplay.
Maybe it still gives a good game, who knows.

Rieneck + Menzel, Pillars of the Earth and World without end were quite good, Iello is releasing a french version thumbsup so why not ?
But the main thing remains the mechanics, and from the rules, it sounds very common to me.
